Details

Organized by artist Jenna Bauer, founder of the Colorbridge Arts Collective, designers of socially informed visual arts education curricula, this exhibit uses the artist’s color wheel as a metaphor to encourage children to contemplate our similarities and differences as human beings. In collaboration with their classroom teachers and Colorbridge art educators, students created thought-provoking stories based on this theme, and also learned a wide variety of studio art-based illustration tactics including drawing and collage techniques, color theory and bookbinding. This exhibit presents over 50 books written and illustrated by students from Word of Life School, St. Cecilia School, Kennard Classical Junior Academy and a group of homeschooled children.

Student and teacher workshops available: Call Rebecca Gunter at 314-533-9900 x18 for information.
